Where tradition meets innovation
At Leigh Academy Blackheath we are passionate about learning. We are driven by the need to develop all of the students in our care into well-rounded, powerful citizens of the future, on both a national and global scale. In September 2018 we will welcome our first cohort of students, providing them with an enriching secondary education which enables them to reach their full potential and thrive.
Like the highly successful Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy in Eltham, Leigh Academy Blackheath is part of Leigh Academies Trust, one of the most successful, medium sized, multi academy trusts in the UK. In 2016, 70% of Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy Year 11 students achieved A*- C in Maths and English, which far exceeds the national average and is the third consecutive year of improvement. Leigh Academy Blackheath will provide the same high quality provision as Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy demanded by the local community and reflected in the 1400 applications they received in 2017 for 270 year 7 places.
We believe that every learner is entitled to an enriching, varied and personalised education; delivered through a broad and balanced curriculum that provides challenge, irrespective of need, starting point or background. Our commitment to maximising the potential of every child; teaching them the skills they need to be successful and nurturing a desire to be a lifelong learner, will prepare them for whichever career path they choose to follow. At Leigh Academy Blackheath we inspire our learners to go beyond what they are taught and seek what they do not yet know.
Our strong learning community works together and shares the value of collaboration; every member of our academy family works together to achieve success cultivating a strong sense of belonging. Our belief in ‘human scale’ education, delivered through a schools within schools model, means every one of our students is known and valued. Strong pastoral care is at the heart of our academy and we place great importance on building strong partnerships with parents and carers.
Leigh Academy Blackheath will open in September 2018 at Victoria House, Shooters Hill Road before moving to a brand new state of the art building on Old Dover Road at Blackheath Standard in September 2020.
Leigh Academy Blackheath is a place where tradition meets innovation.
